A GLOBAL WISDOM CULTURE II
We humans have evolved to consciousness
Above the ken of other creatures’ reach,
Enabling our endeavors to progress
Beyond each rival species’ narrow niche.
Yet how we choose to use our intellect
Will prove if we are truly sapient
And worthy of the Universe’ respect,
Or tragically a failed experiment.
We’re now too powerful and dangerous
Not to wake up and finally realize
Impending perils are too ominous
For Homo sapiens not to grow wise.
While current foolish ways are bound to fail,
A Global Wisdom Culture might prevail.
